    I'm making these right now and they have passed the in-kitchen approval test so here's the recipe from the Epi-Guardian Angels website:

    Oven at 350 deg.

    4 cups Old fashioned oatmeal, not instant

    Mix in a large separate bowl the following:
    1 c grated carrots
    3 eggs
    1 to 1.25 lbs ground turkey
    1 TBLSP olive oil

    Mix in the oats gradually. For a small dog fill mini muffin tins half full and press down. For a large dog fill them to the top and press down. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. These don't keep so refrigerate what you will use in a few days and freeze the rest. Makes dozens of snacks.

    What I like is that there are no preservatives. Oats are relatively easy to digest and my dogs don't get any other grains so the small amount in these doesn't bother me. AND they are super easy to make. [​IMG]

    This looks great!

    One question: Are these crunchy or kind of soft? My 2 little dogs don't like and won't eat the hard dog biscuits.

    They are kind of chewy, not really crunchy.

    I finally got around to making these & all my dogs love them!! I used ground beef instead of turkey cause that's all I had in the freezer & I didn't want to make a trip to the grocery.

    The recipe made about 7 dozen mini-muffins with the cups half full. But now, we've adopted a 2 year old pit bull from my Mom & I need to make some larger ones just for her.

    I'm making my 2nd batch tonight. I think I went overboard with giving my dogs their treats!!

    Here's Bo and Sammy. Looking really raggedy! But so sweet!
